After the acquisition of centers Kendrick Perkins and Nazr Mohammed and guard Nate Robinson, the Thunder remains the third-youngest team in the NBA.


The Thunder has an average age of 25 years and 87 days. Only the Minnesota Timberwolves (24 years and 238 days) and Toronto Raptors (25 years and 22 days) are younger.

OKC's starting lineup of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, Thabo Sefolosha and Perkins is second youngest in the league at 23 years, 335 days. Washington has the youngest starting lineup with an average age of 22 years and 207 days.

The Thunder concluded the 2009-10 season as the NBA's youngest team with an average age of 25 years and 42 days.

Durant has the most made free throw through 300 games (2,087) since Dwyane Wade (2,154).
